KY INBRE NIH Grant Writing Workshop

The Kentucky IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (KY INBRE) will offer an intensive workshop on the development of National Institutes of Health (NIH) R15 Research Enhancement Award proposals. R15 grants are specifically designed to support research projects (three years- $300,000) in the biomedical and behavioral sciences conducted by faculty and students in colleges/universities and health professional schools that have not received more than $6 million in NIH research grants in four of the last seven fiscal years. Thus, faculty at nearly all colleges/universities in Kentucky are eligible.

The three main goals of the R15 program are: (1) to support meritorious research; (2) to strengthen the research environment of the institution; and (3) to expose students to research.

The workshop will be led by faculty and professional proposal development staff at KBRIN institutions that have been successful in competing for R15 grants.  The 2020 workshop will be an online interactive session.  The workshop is designed for faculty with little or no NIH grant writing experience, as well as those with some NIH grant writing experience. 

The workshop will begin at 9:00 am and end around 4:30 pm EST

The workshop is free and open to interested faculty and staff at all Kentucky public and private institutions.

Past attendees at this workshop have been successful in obtaining NIH funding. This workshop is required to be eligible for KY INBRE research grants.  See Research Core
